My stay at the Park Hyatt Maldives is now officially booked! I will travel to the Maldives in December of this year with a few people and we have officially booked our trip!

I asked you guys how many nights I should stay at the Park Hyatt Maldives and I got a mixed number of responses, including those mentioning that if I love the beach (which I do), I should stay as long as I possibly can. I for sure want to stay longer than four nights considering the airport transfer fee is ~$500 USD, which is insane.. and it doesn’t make sense to pay that fee for a three night stay.. I might as well get more value out of the airport transfer fee by staying more nights.

So how many nights am I staying at the Park Hyatt Maldives? 7 nights. Which I think is an ideal combination, as six nights feels too short and with eight, I feel like I am wasting additional points that I could use elsewhere. So how did I book the stay?

  • 2 nights booked using my Chase Hyatt Credit Card two free nights
  • 2 nights booked using my travel companion’s Chase Hyatt Credit Card two free nights
  • 3 nights booked using Hyatt Gold Passport World of Hyatt points

One night in December costs around $1200 USD, therefore I think we extracted some tremendous value from the free night certificates and the points since we don’t have to pay anything except for the airport transfer fee.

All in all I’m super excited to be heading to the Maldives and I’m glad that I was able to redeem the free nights and points in an amazing way. The last time I had my two free nights from Chase, I used them at the Park Hyatt New York, which I love as well. Though I think the Maldives is a much better option.

I’m excited!
